SELF EMPLOYED LEGAL PROFESSIONALS:
“I love being self-employed. For years, I worked for other people and was relatively happy. However, I always had a nagging feeling that I wanted to strike out on my own. I wanted more freedom. I wanted control over my own destiny. And, now that I’ve finally made the move, I’ll do whatever it takes to never look back.” Solicitor Anonymous
There is a lot to love about self-employment. You have the freedom to make your own choices and decisions. You can set your own hours, build your own investment (rather than somebody else’s) and never have to ask off for time off for vacation or family events. Of course, you don’t get paid when you go on vacation either, so there is definitely a balance that needs to be struck.
Here are a few financial benefits of being self-employed.
- Want a raise? Either work harder, drum up more business, or both.With self-employment, you get to reap what you sow, which means you earning potential is only limited by your ideas and your work ethic. This is huge, but also comes with a lot of responsibility, remember you only get paid for the work you actually do, not for simply showing up.
- Save money on transportation and clothing - If you’re lucky enough to run your business out of your home, you can save a bundle on transportation costs to and from work. You probably don’t think about how much it costs you to travel to work, because it’s become habit for you. Again, while this isn’t true for all self-employed individuals, if you’re able to work from home you can save money throughout the year on clothing costs. Those working in a professional office atmosphere have to dress the part. Even if you don’t have to wear a suit every day, you’re still expected to look professional.
- Unlimited income potential - One of the greatest rewards of self-employment is the opportunity to make an unlimited amount of income. Unlike most jobs in the corporate world, your salary is never capped. You are in control of how much money you ultimately make.

I found Kaye to be approachable, supportive and helpful, giving me tips and suggested techniques regarding the interview process and she kept me up to date every step of the way. Kaye understood my situation, the type of new role I was looking for and found me a position that ticked all of the boxes. I was impressed with how knowledgeable Kaye was about my future employer, which proved to me that she has a very good working relationship with them. This in itself gave me confidence that I had been recruited into a suitable role. This was my first experience of using a recruitment consultant and I've been very impressed. So much so, that I've already recommended Kaye to others based on my own experience and I will continue to do so.”
